Good for the Jews?:
A Symposium of Scholars and Artists on Jewish Identity in American Theatre and Performance
Andrea Levine

Andrea Levine teaches humanities and writing at The George Washington University.  Her work on race and masculinity has appeared in such journals as American Literature and MELUS  (where she has written on the submerged Jewish content in Norman Mailer’s construction of the “White Negro”).  Her research on contemporary Jewish American literature focuses on the place of Jews in U.S. racial discourse.  An article entitled, “Embodying Jewishness at the Millennium,” takes up representations of  Jewish bodily difference in the recent work of Michael Chabon, Philip Roth, and Tony Kushner; the piece is forthcoming in Shofar.  She is also writing an essay about critiques of the nation in Philip Roth’s novels.  Another article,  “’In His Own Home’: Gendering the African American Domestic Sphere in Contemporary Culture,” will appear in the June, 2011 issue of Women’s Studies Quarterly.
